Most likely your stockings are already hung by the chimney with care in hopes that Saint Nicholas soon will be there. Jaime from That’s My Letter helped a family who welcomed a little one this year get ready for the big day with a set of personalized plaid stockings. There’s not much that says Christmas like the red and green tartan!

CONFESSIONS-OF-A-PLATE-ADDICT-Pottery-Barn-Inspired-Monogrammed-Board-5_thumb5.jpg

Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict had been eyeing Pottery Barn’s monogrammed serving boards for quite some time and finally found a way to create her own version for only $5! Debbie picked up a well-used cutting board from the thrift store and gave it a whole new look with a monogram, wood stain, and wooden legs. This is a great gift idea to keep in mind for friends who love to entertain!

Amy from Amy’s Casablanca created this gorgeous upholstered headboard with nailhead trim for her guest bedroom in just an hours time and for under $100. While I love the neutral fabric Amy chose, you could really make a statement in a room with a colored fabric and that eye-catching Greek-key nailhead pattern.

Mercury glass ornaments aren’t limited to glass bulbs. Just check out this mercury glass bear that Jill from Create.Craft.Love made by spray painting a plastic toy. This is such an awesome idea! With one can of spray paint and a few outgrown or thrifted toys, you could inexpensively adorn your tree with several silvery animals.

Natalie from Sophisticated Yellow came across an ad for Restoration Hardware’s Montpellier Armoire and fell in love with its dark, bold, and commanding look. Not surprisingly, it was also expensive. However, Natalie happened to have two old armoires sitting in her garage that looked remarkably similar. A few coats of paint later and some light sanding was all it took to transform her old armoires into Restoration Hardware’s black beauties.

Feather Ball Ornament

Mari of Crab+Fish almost bought these feathery ornaments from West Elm before she realized they couldn’t be that hard to replicate. With a few minutes of time and a Styrofoam ball, ric rac, and feathers, Mari did just that! She says, “ My version isn’t quite as fancy and flouncy and orderly as West Elm’s version…but I like my puffball version better!”

You may be thinking this is another painted rug tutorial, but Nicole came up with a creative way to form the diamond design on a shaggy rug using embroidery thread. The thread blends beautifully into the rug to create a subtle graphic pattern.
